#qi-hardware IRC log for Wednesday, 2012-09-12

Guest43751I don't believe it. I have had a big ID10T error. note to self check that I am editing asound.rc not .state! sorry every one again :(. now to see if it works...01:31
xiangfuwpwrak, http://downloads.qi-hardware.com/people/xiangfu/tmp/Screenshot-ledtoy.ogg-1.png13:29
larsc:)13:31
xiangfu:)13:35
larsc25 LEDs?13:36
xiangfu24 LEDs13:39
larscdo you know the max G typically reported by the sensor?13:44
xiangfusorry, what do you mean on 'max G' ?13:48
larscthe acceleration13:48
xiangfudon't  know that. 13:49
xiangfuwerner can answer that question. :)13:49
Action: xiangfu uploading the video now.13:50
wpwraklarsc: there is no sensor that reports acceleration :)14:29
larscso, it's not antorcha?14:33
wpwrakxiangfu: btw, you cut off the rightmost line of pixels. just checked. it should be there :)14:39
wpwraklarsc: no, this one is a bit smaller. antorcha has 32 LEDs (lit in pairs). this one has 24 controlled individually.14:39
larscah, ok14:39
Action: kristianpaul imagines attaching an antorcha to its rc plain14:40
wpwrakkristianpaul: a modern successor of this one ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Goodyear_Blimp_-_Spirit_of_Innovation.jpg14:43
kristianpaullighter :)14:44
xiangfuwpwrak, ok we needs calculate the full-image-wave-speed. on 50fps video. :-D14:53
xiangfutime to sleep. see you14:56
qi-bot[commit] Lars-Peter Clausen: ASoC: JZ4740: Add TLV information (jz-3.5) http://qi-hw.com/p/qi-kernel/c6ebd3d20:27
mthlarsc: what is TLV?20:30
larsctlv is short for type, lenght, value, but in alsa it's used to describe the dB values of a volume20:32
larscmaybe the patch title should have read 'Add dB information'20:32
larscthe patch in itself is just cosmetic20:33
larsce.g. in alsamixer you'll now see dB values instead of percent values20:34
mthok, thanks20:35
Action: wpwrak hates the shamelessly extroverted sex life of those plants20:50
whitequarkwhat21:00
whitequarkahh, you've got an allergy21:00
wpwrakaye. damn pollen. and already in september. grmbl.21:01
Guest37051:) poor wpwrak21:15
wpwrak*snivel*21:21
DocScrutinizer05wpwrak: get proper medication! Allergies get "trained", and you can make your immune system "forget" the allergy after some years, if you all the time stop the sympthoms so no further "training" happens21:29
DocScrutinizer05it's kinda like a negative vaccination21:30
Guest37051How to temporary disable screen time out?21:32
whitequarksetterm -blank 021:32
Guest37051thanks21:33
Guest37051my countdown script now has fancy fonts that fill the screen. :) will release update in a some days. bitcoin2012 conf is my foucs nowish.21:38
larscDocScrutinizer05: I heard the reverse. If you treat the sympthoms it will get worse and you'll need more and more medication21:39
Guest37051spent a few hours reading alsa doc on dmix tried out configs off the wiki. apparently dmix should already be set-up out of the box. Any input?21:40
wpwrakDocScrutinizer05, larsc: all this suggests a high degree of randomness ;-)21:41
wpwrakand yes, i'm taking my pills. without them, i'd be quite useless for a good while21:42
DocScrutinizer05well, for me it worked21:42
wpwrakwell, i'd still be a fairly efficient water-into-slime converter, even with a built-in complaint function, but ...21:42
Guest37051http://alsa.opensrc.org/AlsaSharing21:42
DocScrutinizer05larsc: actually the antiallergica lose efficiency quite fast, so you need to switch type of medication every now and then21:43
larscI grew up on a farm, but ever since I moved to the city I've started to become alergic to the country side21:45
wpwrakmaybe it's psychological. suppression of childhood memories.21:46
DocScrutinizer05heard about that effect too, kinda. Most allergenes only trigger allergy on first contact, the symptoms only show up on *second* contact21:46
larscit's like that with insects bites21:47
wpwraki suspect it's more like cumulative effects. not necessarily strictly additive, but perhaps combinatorial. so as time goes on, you get allergic to more things.21:47
larscbut it's not like it's my second contact with country air21:47
larscI actually blame it on my flatmates cat.21:48
wpwrakcats ... reviled since ancient times :)21:48
DocScrutinizer05the getting allergic to more things is a nasty effect where immune system shoots on innocent bystanders during a heavy battle21:48
DocScrutinizer05also during real flu21:49
DocScrutinizer05exposure to pollen while you carry a flu is prone to trigger allergy21:49
wpwrakbystanders, watch out when DocScrutinizer05 comes to town, wearing a black coat and armed with a flu ! :)21:49
DocScrutinizer05larsc: my first though (at that time unnoticed) allergy been against cat, when we had one. Some 2 years later grass allergy kicked in. When I left my parents' home I developed full symtoms on cat allergenes21:52
larscYea, I suppose something similar happend to me21:53
DocScrutinizer05never really noticed or took notice about the terrible itching when our cat scratched me21:53
Guest37051-blank [0-60|force|poke] (virtual consoles only) ???21:54
DocScrutinizer05until I left "the cat's house" and from then on my eyes and nose and lungs showed real heavy symptoms on cats21:54
wpwrakdidn't we evolve from rodents ? there you have remnants of the same good old survival instincts :)21:55
DocScrutinizer05hehe21:56
DocScrutinizer05funny factoid: the commonly blamed cat hair is completely innocent. It's either skin dandruff or the dried spittle of the cat's fur cleaning21:58
wpwraktherefore, bathe your cat daily with anti-dandruff shampoo22:00
DocScrutinizer05and there are actually enormous differences between two cats' allergenic properties22:00
Guest37051my nano note sounds like a hollywood bomb22:01
wpwraksince human skin, when damaged, tends to grow back a bit thicker than before, you should acquire the skin thickness necessary to withstand the cat's response to such treatment in relatively a short amount of time22:01
larscanother theory of mine is that some of this is due to my bad caffeine habit22:07
qi-bot[commit] Paul Cercueil: RTC: JZ4740: Init the "regulator" register on startup. (jz-3.5) http://qi-hw.com/p/qi-kernel/5afecbf22:15
DocScrutinizer05hmm, I heard of Aspirine (acetyl salicyl acid) as trigger for all sorts of allergies, but never of caffeine22:15
Guest37051reliable way to get setterm -blank value?22:15
DocScrutinizer05read out?22:15
DocScrutinizer05not possible afaik22:15
Guest37051I want to disable blanking in my script and on exit re-enable it.22:17
whitequarksysfs maybe22:17
Guest37051cgroup/   ecryptfs/ ext4/     fuse/22:21
DocScrutinizer05hmm├č22:23
DocScrutinizer05?22:23
Guest37051http://useranswer.com/answer/disable-screen-blanking-on-text-console/22:28
Guest37051https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=setterm+blank+value&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb22:28
DocScrutinizer05Guest37051: alternative: use setterm -blank poke in a loop in your script, to keep screen unblanked without changing blank setting22:31
Guest37051oh theres an idear22:32
Guest37051it will do. though I guess it waste battery...22:33
Guest37051I do have a loop anyway.22:34
DocScrutinizer05(battery) won't be noticeable with a sleep 10 in between, and screen backlight on anyway22:38
Guest37051arr well the loop is evey sec22:40
DocScrutinizer05not really a problem either22:43
DocScrutinizer05as long as the device does proper zero-clock22:44
Guest37051 zero-clock?22:45
Guest37051btw cat /sys/module/kernel/parameters/consoleblank22:48
DocScrutinizer05yeah, seen it22:51
DocScrutinizer05:-)22:51
DocScrutinizer05also seen ## setterm -blank 0 >> /etc/issue ## and scratched my head22:52
DocScrutinizer05setterm -blank 0 >> xxx; ls -l xxx   -> 0 bytes22:52
Guest37051setterm -blank $((`cat /sys/module/kernel/parameters/consoleblank`/60))22:54
Guest37051oh hag on22:54
Guest37051all done. thanks for your help22:56
Guest37051lol hag on23:07
